The Young Dubliners
Friday, August 25 | The Toyota Yard @ Topgolf Las Vegas
FREE SHOW: 9:00PM
It’s Fight Weekend in Las Vegas with the highly anticipated match-up between the legendary Floyd Mayweather and Ireland’s own, Conor McGregor. We’re kicking off the weekend with a high energy show featuring The Young Dubliners.
The Young Dubliners are quite possibly Celtic rock’s hardest working band, playing hundreds of shows to thousands of fans across the US and Europe every year. In recent years they have appeared on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, had songs featured in TV shows and toured extensively as a headliner and as the opener for such a diverse list of artists as Collective Soul, Jethro Tull, Johnny Lang and many more.
Although the Young Dubliners sound is most commonly called 'Celtic Rock', that label is misleading. The Irish influence is there, certainly, but it's not the only influence that rears its head on their albums, or in live shows. After all, several of the band members have no Irish roots of any kind. "That was always the idea", Keith Roberts, lead singer for the band explains. "The sound was always intended to be a hybrid because we all come from different backgrounds. Even though two of us are from Ireland, a lot of the music we listened to growing up wasn't Irish at all, but when we got here, we got homesick and developed a new appreciation for Irish Music. In truth the Celtic riffs can just as easily come from the American band members.
This free show is for all ages!
